"I am not saying I accept the behavior, I just want to wait and see if any of them might change their mind. After all, it is quite possible a gems mental capacity might get...scrambled, should they stay by themselves with nothing to keep them in line." She shrugged as they kept going "I feel it might be a bit far to consider them as rebels. Then again, what would I know? I was never one for the line of combat anyway. The only times I was ever even allowed on the front lines was whenever they wanted to test me out as a "bard" position. " Melody sighed and smiled as they kept going, staying quiet and simply enjoying the ride
"Yes Lady Chyrsocolla I do understand, but you see... THAT is the main problem! A Gem should be loyal to the Homeworld, the Empire, the Diamonds! Not changing her mind at whim!"
The Smoky Quartz shook hid head with concern
"Once a traitor, always a traitor! Something is terribly wrong with those Gems... the Rebels and the so called Independents...."
But he nodded
"But I think you are right... the lack of leadership and order could be the source of the problem! And when we estalish the colonial Court, the problem will solve itself. But it would be wise to watch them after their "repentance"
Morion was always open to the peacefull solutions And then they arrived; a little glade, silent, serene, with a beautiful view under the star filled sky and huge silver Moon He stopped the "stted", and helped down the petite little Gem
"Of course! A colonial court could be the perfect thing to do in this case. I feel like once that would be established then the gems would eventually come back to the Loyalist side, granted it might be some time but if nothing else our efforts could bear fruit." Melody smiled and nodded, glad to see that her new ally was willing to use peace instead of pointless violence. She looked around in awe as they stopped at the glade. "This is amazing..." Chrysocolla giggled and hopped down with Morion's assistance, taking her guitar off of the "steed" and looking around "How long have you known about this place? I don't think I've seen anything like this in my time here on Earth ever!"
"How long? well... Earth is full of secret places! Ruined and abandoned human cities... forgotten Gem temples and facilites. Actually most of the Gems are lazy. Since wr are used to follow orders, without leaders they are lost. Just... wandering around, or sitting in one place. I am an Infiltrator, so I am used to working alone on a planet. After the sabotages it was logical to explore."
The Smoky Quartz explained "Earth is a beautifull planet, full of life... this is why it is perfect for the Kindergartnes. Not just minerals and such riches. The Kindergartens need "life force" to, that energy in a living planet I think. But actually I don't know. But since the developing Gems drains out the life of their incubator-planets, it is logical..."
"I see...very interesting. I don't blame you for exploring then." Melody nodded and listened as Morion explained what he had done. "That's also expected in my opinion, I can understand why Homeward considered this planet in the first place. Earth does have quite the scenery, shame the Kindergartens have to use the energy." She sighed and sat down on the grass, laying back and looking up at the stars. "This is quite the place to have all to yourself. I suppose it's easy to understand how one could sort of lose themselves in an area like this. Just sing and play, have some fun. No cares, no worries." She looked over at the Smokey Quartz "Have you ever shown anyone this place?"
"Actually this little hiding spot is not mine... "
The Smoky Quartz admited 'But have my bases... in Columbia, in Empire City... and so on. This is just a cool spot to relax, to meditate, to sing, or play... or just to watch the stars. You can see the Homeworld Galaxy from here, you know! There, that is it! That bright one!"
He pointed to it The sighed "The last Gem who was here with me... was a Spiderweb Jasper. A kindred spirit. Called Spider. She is... she is gone now. Killed or captured by the Rebels. I really miss her... she was a good company. Always the good ones go away before their time... and we are left here. The life's greatest prank is we always loose the ones who we like...
"I see...I'm sorry that you lost her. It seems like some gems just disappear here on Earth for no reason. Perhaps the Corruption got to her.." Melody sighed and looked up at the galaxy with Morion, smiling "I see it, and I'm glad you have other bases then. Perhaps I should try to pay them a visit." She shrugged and rolled over next to the Smokey Quartz, smiling "It's stuff like this that helps me decide how I want to write songs. For example, and I'm only using this as an example, I could write a song about Spider. I believe the brand of music that the humans call it is blues for..obvious reasons. Or a bit of a happy tune if you want"
"Oh there is a reason! It is called: The Crytsal Gems!!!"
The smoky Quartz growled, like a beast
"They are responsible for the Corruption and the disappearance of the Gems... "
But Morion forced some calmness on himself
"It would be a honor to have you as a guest Lady Chyrsocolla! I can't really tell you anything about spider that would help to compse a songe I am afraid M'lady... They were only my memories, not true facts. Let... lets write a song about something else, okay?"
He smiled with a little tired smile
"By the way, how many Gems had the honor to know you? How many friends do you have on this Diamond forsaken, cursed planet? If it is not a secret of course...
"Really? Not saying I support the Crystal Gems, but I heard a rumor that the Corruption was some sort of virus that was released from a Kindergarten." Melody asked curiously but nodded and smiled "Fair enough, I can understand how you feel. It's alright if you want to hold on to the memories." She thought to herself and sighed, thinking. "Perhaps a song about your time here, or mine? And I can't really remember how many gems I met. I don't remember if I already told you or not, but I met this Zerul and Blue Topaz after the whole bar incident. One of them didn't seem like an enemy and the other was a crystal gem but she let me explore the temple to some degree."
"Well, I have told you my theory about the corruption..."
The smoky Quartz nodded
"Song about my time here... or your time? Mine is not that exciting"
"But your... it would be a great honor to hear it, a song about your time and experiences on this little almost - a - Gem - colony, called Earth!"
"Oh, Zerul... I had the misfortune to meet that insane little ... thing"
"AND please for the love of the Diamonds, don't start the "he is just lost and and and..." No. He is an insane, amnesiac risk factor! Should be shattered. But alas, our encounter was at the Lunar Sea Spire and I would never dishonor that place or defile it with a murder. Actually I helped him, told him everything about the Gems, our race... and let him warp away. He was lucky. I don't know the other one... but this Blue Topaz... is a Crystal Gem, am I right Lady Chyrsocolla?"
Melody shrugged and smiled "It was worth a shot. And fine...I suppose a song couldn't hurt." She nodded when she listened to Morion talk about Zerul, remembering how he hadn't seemed that..well, lost in comparison to what she was hearing. Perhaps he had gotten used to his time on Earth? Oh well. "Yes, you are correct. Blue Topaz is one of the crystal gems, an interesting one too. She didn't attack me when I explained the whole bar incident. In fact if it hasn't for her and Zerul I could have easily ended up spending time in one of those prisons the human police have set up. Granted I probably could have gotten out but either way, it's not good for my image"
"Lady Chyrsocolla, I hope you realize, it is your solemn duty to help me to find and eliminate this Crystal Gem, since I am a "loyalist". No ifs or buts. He is a dirty rebel."
The Smoky Quartz looked to Chyrsocolla with a grim look "I am not talking about shattering her... but poofing and bubbling her is the normal in this case. But I think you already know this, and this is why you told me her alligance. Am I right Lady Chyrsocolla?"
Morion tone was cold and dark He feard this was it... no more songs or smiles If Chyrsocolla refuse to help, she is a sympathyzer, no better than the Crystal Killers, and Morion is not a mercyful Gem And he hated himself for it
"I'm aware of that Morion, the only reason I didn't even consider this was because I was freaking out and was lost." She sighed in frustration "Th-that's obviously why I told you. I don't know where she is though. That gem can fly, and I don't mean by shapeshifting." Melody laid down and looked up at the sky, staring at the night sky "I suppose the only reason I may not be thinking about bubbling her is because I just don't fight as often as the other gems. I always was a musician at heart..." She hopped up and looked over at Morion "I still will consider you an ally, no matter what. At the moment though I think I just am good at tracking."
"I am glad, we understand each other Lady Chyrsocolla..."
The Smoky Quartz nodded
"You are an artist... it is not your job to fight, thats our job. Don't worry... nobody expects you to grab a sword instead of a guitar and run in to battle singing war songs..."
"Tho'... I think you would be an awesome inspiration on the field m'lady!"
Morion walked to the bike, grabbing his guitar
"We are allies, don't worry Lady Chyrsocolla! Contrary to popular belief, I am not an insane monster who wants to rule the world... I never wanted to rule nor destroy the world!"
He smiled, he got an idea how to cheer up Melody
"And I do understand the position... situation you were in then, and you are in at the moment! I am quite a reasonable Gem! As an Infiltrator I have learned the delicate art of the courtly plays and how dance with the aristocrats..."
Morion turned the bike's light on, so he was in the spotlight now, on "stage" and turned up the player's volume And singed: "Let's live before die... lets laugh before we cry Let's hold each other tight and die Let's try before we fail Let's fly before we bail Let's keep things black and white and dance!
The World, We See. Can only be our friend If You. And Me, keep dancing till the end Cant' we see eye to eye, and over simplify. Lets live before we die and dance!"
I've never been inclined, to leave the past behind
Lets stay right where we are, and dance!
Its like a castanet..we'll click with no regret!
Let's find the evening star and dance
The place were in, can never be what was Till we begin what dancing does
Don't leave me high and dry But can't you see that I say live before we die..and..
If time keeps ticking by... Then maybe we should try to face it as a pair and dance!
Although we're lost! Where drifting out to sea But side by side, where gloomy as can be.. As gloomy as can be...If you can take my hand.. Then surely, we could stand and live before we die...and... Dance"
The Smoky Quartz pulled Melody closer... and then showed her the Tango^^
Melody smiled and nodded "Thank you, I'm glad you understand. Personally I'm flattered by the thought of you saying I'd be good on the battlefield. At the very least I consider you a respectable gem for that." She smirked as Morion stood up in the "spotlight". The song that he was singing was very interesting, the Smokey Quartzs singing voice was respectable. Eventually, she found herself standing up with him and doing the tango. It had been awhile since Melody had danced in general, or rather doing a dance that wasn't her trying to show off during one of her performances. "You're quite the dancer! I'm impressed~" Melody said as they kept dancing, she eventually found herself humming an extra tune to fit the scene
This Roleplay is a prequel to Steven Universe to an extent with some slight retconing and its own progression to the story that will turn out differently to how stuff plays out in the show.Thanks to the message by Rose Quartz several gems are rising up to protect Earth and have labelled themselves as the Crystal Gems. Others on earth are remaining aligned to Homeworld though despite the isolation of Earth from Homeworld
All gems on earth are still stranded, the communication hub is still offline and all the space warps are shattered, it has now been revealed that this is the work of Rose Quartz and her small group known as the Crystal gems. They have rebelled against Homeworld and have chosen to protect the Earth (Trapping themselves on Homeworld to keep the warps down).
Now both sides are fighting among themselves along with fighting against the 'Corruption' a virus is infecting many gems turning most of them into mindless monsters, but those with a stronger will seem to becoming something more sinister.
The Game has changed now. The question has finally been posed, are you against Homeworld or allied with them. Or do you have your own agenda that may or may not been assisted by the ‘Corruption’. Regardless the seeds have been placed down and although it is only the beginning the fight for or against Earth and the corruption has begun. The choice is yours for how it is shaped on the Original Steven Universe Roleplay Site.
